“bad start to a three day stay”
Reviewed 31 October 2010

Our fourth hotel in a week of travelling in China. Exchange rate offered on US$ was terrible, far worse than any other hotel. Room is small, with stairs inside the room leading to the bathroom. Beds are very hard. In-room complimentary coffee/tea service does not include coffee or sugar or sweetener. Worst of all, no one could provide a business card or email address of the general manager to offer the hotel a chance to improve our stay. I have advised our travel agent to offer other hotels in Guangzhou in future.

Nanyang King's Gate Hotel, though located a little away from the Pazhou Exhibition Centre (relative to other hotels), offered a good ambiance for stay and a western restaurant with a good spread at Breakfast time.

The limited choice for strict vegetarians is well cooked and goes well with steamed rice.

The restaurant staff wear the best smiles and make a genuine effort to converse in English while others struggle to do so especially the housekeeping and room service staff.

Best way to make them understand English words is to spell it for them...this makes it easier as their accent is very different.

The hotel has an interior with an imposing Gold color including the rooms. This gives a glittering effect which makes one feel like being in a leisure hotel, though I found quite a few business men (including us).

The City of Guangzhou has many attractions (apart from businesses) and one boat ride on the Pearl River at night gives a flavor of its richness. A must see.

The taxi service is quite reliable and affordable. The ride to the airport takes about an hour (under normal traffic conditions) and costs about 120-150 RMB.

This is my first visit to Guangzhou and China too, overall it had been a very pleasant with not many surprises.

Definitely impressed with the infrastructure and progress this Country is making and driving its businesses all over the world.

Reviewed 20 March 2010

The hotel is emblazoned with regal decor and everywhere seems to be covered in 'gold'. Stayed two nights in three superior rooms at Triumph Wing. What is unusual is a bathing compartment that provides different shower possibilities - hand held shower rose, fixed shower directly above the head, and sprinklers at the side. A steam bath can be had inside at the press of the button. Although it claims to be a five-star hotel, there is no swimming pool nor a gym associated with that status. For the price of RMB380 per night per room, I guess I'm not complaining except for the strong odour of tobacco lingering in the room - an irritant for most non-smokers in many venues in Guangzhou.
